council. a second council member is calling for the resignation of harry thomas jr. issued a statement this morning joining david in his call for thomas to step down. thomas on friday agreed to settle a civil suit with the district by paying back $300,000 in district money. he is accused of spending the city's grants and charitable contributions on a luxury suv and vacations instead of youth activities for which the money was supposed to be earmarked. wtop political analyst is here tonight. mark, good to have you. >> thank you for inviting me, will. >> you bet. the legal battles are not over. there's a criminal investigation, right? >> that's absolutely right. that's more for him to worry about as i said last night. he retained -- the courts have abby who is a high profile criminal attorney and attorney general in the settlement did not in any way pull back even
10:33 pm
though they settled in terms of financial in saying that they were going to root out any of these transactions like this in the future and so it really didn't give a clean bill of health and also will, when he made the announcement. i was at the press conference, he said if he had the power, he would have charged him criminally. so this is a sort of situation -- his responsibility for the attorney general was to get back the money that thomas had fraudulently retained and that was done, there doesn't seem to be any remorse from mr. thomas and in a statement yesterday was really kind of mind boggling. >> some of the statements said that he didn't have to admit wrong doing and he didn't do anything wrong, but it sounds like he is at least trying to put some of this behind him. two council members are asking
10:34 pm
for him to resign. do you expect more to join? >> no. i would be astonished if others did, because look. this is the real political world. they trade votes, they are on different committees. this is not something they announce or publicize and i think some council members who probably want him gone feel that the ultimate responsibility, there are two avenues. one is recall. you can be recalled in the second and third year of the term, which is next year. nobody has ever been recalled. or you wait until 2014 when he is up for reelection. i don't expect the mayor or the council chair who have their own problems to be political allies of harry thomas jr. in the end, the only possible way in which he would resign is if he was humiliated, embarrassed, and in some way actually there was an on slot in ward 5 from his own constituent. >> i have 15 seconds left.
10:35 pm
quickly, any additional political ramifications for thomas? he already stepped down from his post as chairman of the committee on government operations. >> economic development. >> i think he is just going to be a council member that isn't going to have much clout and he better worry about his political future. >> all right. mark with wtop. good to have your insight tonight. >> thank you. new tonight at 10:00, allegations of sexual misconduct for congressman david woo from oregon. his accuser is the daughter of a long time friend and campaign donor. sources claiming that woo was expected to meet with congressional leaders over that issue today. fox's peter has more details. >> when someone checked the voice mail at democratic congressman david woo's oregon office, they heard an emotional office by a girl that graduated high school last year, saying the congressman involved her in an unwanted sexual encounter. all the congressman said so far
10:36 pm
is quote, this is very serious and i have no desire to bring unwanted publicity, attention, or stress to a young woman and her family. that is it. the newspaper also reporting that this young lady is the daughter of a long time woo friend and campaign donor and she didn't call the cops back in november when the incident allegedly occurred because there weren't any witnesses and she didn't think she would have enough evidence. woo has apparently admitted something sexual did happen, he says it was consensual. this is the not first time he had to do explaning about his extracurricular activities. this photo was sent to his staff. it shows the law school graduate dressed as a tiger. came in the mist of bizarre behavior. some staffers wanted him to enter a mental hospital. he refused. blamed all the weirdness on stress and exhaustion. accusations aren't necessarily new to woo.

dulles and baltimore tied records that were set back in 1991. so pretty good example of where we hit today if you really, really thought it was hot, you are absolutely right. it felt warmer because of the heat in dc. that's the same story we have been dealing with and that is the trend that is going to continue. 90 degrees this hour at national airport. 86 at gaithersburg. 87 at hagerstown. we have 90 at annapolis this hour and as we head up the mid atlantic, 84 in boston. and take a look at the heat in dc. this is what it feels like if you head outside. not a big difference here right now. but into the course of earlier today, it was a different ball game. we were into the triple digits. plus 105 or more. it's 90 degrees at national. humidity is at 57%. a light westerly wind flow is what we have. and as far as national temperatures are concerned, take a look. the heat just really impacting most of the country, especially from the midsection of the country to the east. this entire area has just been
10:52 pm
gridlocked into the heat wave with triple digit highs into the course of the day and the heat in dc as well on a national weather has been something to take a look at and speak about. look at this. it feels like it's 99 degrees in dallas this hour. 104 is the heat in indexes in st. louis. as i said, we're going to get a break, but not a huge break. hot and humid conditions for tomorrow once again. sunday from noon until 8:00 at night, we still have a excessive heat warning in effect and that is implying the heat factored in the with humidity and the heat advisory from noon until 8:00 tomorrow evening. satellite radar composite, we had storms that blew through the south earlier today. right now not a lot happening there. things could change into the course of tomorrow. frontal system moving its way to the south that set us up for scattered storms. could see one or two popping up before noon. majority into the course of the afternoon and evening hours. we'll have to watch that closely and keep our eyes to
10:53 pm
the score. so hazy, hot, and humid once again. we can't tell you enough. check on your elderly neighbors. please don't leave your pets in this heat. make sure they have plenty of water and check on your elderly neighbors. five-day forecast coming up and as you'll see, we're looking at temperatures into the lower 90s for a couple days. so a bit of a break, relatively speaking as i mentioned, storms begin on monday and we dry out again. another ridge of high pressure building in. >> a bit of a break, yo u have three h's in your forecast. what is it? > hazy, hot, and humid. looking for ways to save cash? hey, who isn't. this could be the secret to saving up to 30% on your car insurance. at least that's what the claim is. we're going to put this gadget to the test coming up next. and on the news edge at 11:00, this local psychiatrist murdered according to police by his own patients. what led to the violence?

a little gadget promises to save you up to 30% on your car insurance. but does it really work? fox's chris took the progressive challenge and here's what he found. >> we broke open the box, attached the transmitter to my car's computer port under the dash and then drove. for 30 days, progressive snapshot logged my daily drive. time, speed, distance, and how often i stomped the brake. it sent a report after each trip. online, policyholders instantly see charts and graphs. but that's all phone. >> just plug it in. >> progressive's heavily advertised promise of a discount is what really matters. up to 30% off. >> only thing it cares about is saving you money.
10:58 pm
>> following a month of commute, i got a 7% rate cut. apparently too many miles and too many hard brakes for a full 30% reduction. still, i would save $54 a year. enough cash to fill the tank in exchange for a little big brother. a tradeoff for some. >> i think every american driver is going to want this. no but i think a lot of drivers are interested in this. >> progressive says the device can only lower rates, not hike them. already a quarter million snapshots are on the road. all state, gmac and state farm are working on similar technology. because the transmitter improves the way insurers gauge driver risk. >> the way it works now with insurance companies is they ask you how many miles you drive. some people over estimate. some people under estimate. >> for example, steve cordilla. >> so far i'm saving money. >> he seldomly drives this jeep, but was paying a full premium, not anymore. after popping in a snapshot,
10:59 pm
progressive confirmed they usually park, so it slashed its policy $100 yearly. technology on the ball, but out of sight. >> you can see it, but you don't know that it's there. >> my experience was, of course, different. my snapshot beeped, a lot. once when i got going plus each sudden brake. turns out it is instant feedback by design. >> you get a report card. >> when i shut off the motor, snapshot makes a musical judgment, an upbeat chime for a good drive or a noticeably different tune for a bad one. i give it a green light with the exception of what it does at yellow lights. often i was penalized for stopping short when my alternative was much riskier, running the red. it was like having a spouse in the car. in time, i was tailoring my driving
